June 2013: Manhattan: The New York Vein Treatment Center is providing education to the public about the different types of vein disease they may experience. In a recent article published on the center’s website, Dr. Lev Khitin, a leading vein doctor at the center, advises patients to understand the causes and types of vein diseases in order to make lifestyle changes to reduce their risk.
“Varicosities are the enlarged, torturous and bulging veins,” explain Dr. Khitin. “The pathological process comes from an abnormal amount of blood pooling backward into the veins.” Spider veins are formed due to the same mechanism, affecting much smaller veins and venous capillaries. Spider veins and varicose veins are most likely to occur in the legs, but can develop in virtually any other area of our body.
Patients with any type of vein disease can find treatment at the New York Vein Treatment Center. The center uses the newest technologies to provide safe and effective treatment for their patients. More information on types of vein disease can be found on the center’s Facebook and Twitter pages.
Vein diseases can have serious implications on a person’s health and should not be ignored.

Varicose Vein Treatment Options
Varicose veins and spider veins are extremely common in men and women. While spider veins are very small, reddish veins on the surface of the skin, varicose veins are much larger, bulging, tangled veins that may appear bluish in color. Men and women suffer from varicose veins, although women are much more likely to have them.
Today, patients have access to a number of effective varicose vein treatment options. Advancements in technology and medicine have led to the development of safe, effective, minimally invasive treatment modalities that provide excellent, most importantly permanent results with no side-effects or downtime. Some of these modalities are foam- sclerotherapy and cryo-sclero, radio-frequency ablation, micro-phlebectomy, endovenous LASER obliteration and many others.
